    I suspect that many of us still do...



    At about four and a half minutes in, the video does something very unusual for such presentations; it gives the counter-arguments against it's own claim. As I was watching it, I was thinking about how a bit of sensationalism guiding a series of coincidences were being used and any other evidence ignored. When it began to refute its own claim, I was pleasantly surprised.
